Descriptions & details

The origins of the Raffaellesco as a Deruta pottery design are uncertain. Our favorite theory is that the craftsman who created this design wanted to pay tribute to the seagoing merchants who brought the "maiolica" from the East to Italy, thus laying the groundwork for a most beloved Italian craft.
Before boarding their ships, the merchants used to invoke the favors of the benevolent dragon, who granted them good luck and fair winds.

The artist

L'Antica Deruta is a family-owned business founded by Alviero Moretti in the fifties. He was an innovator, determined to make pottery that, while very much inspired by traditional designs, would be more suitable to modern lifestyle and artistic sensibility. While working on his own collections, Alviero collaborated with prominent Italian painters and sculptors, effectively promoting ceramics as a contemporary art medium.
L'Antica Deruta is now run by Alviero Moretti's children, with passion and dedication.

Deruta is a small town in Umbria, in the heart of Italy. It has been one of the most vital centers for the production of Italian ceramics since the Renaissance (15th century). Today, Deruta is highly regarded worldwide for the fine quality and beauty of its pottery.
